Jill Mountford, a member of the Momentum Steering Committee, spoke to Solidarity about fighting her expulsion from the Labour Party. This version is a bit longer than in the printed paper.
"if the Blairites can be in the Labour Party, why can’t I?"
Because the Labour(!) Party is a large scale, decades long project to harness and then nullify any genuine left wing or working class effectiveness or real progress which might threaten the Capitalist State. It is an anti-radicalism movement masquerading as the opposite. And it has succeeded spectacularly in it's aim.
"we weren’t under any illusions that a Labour government then would put forward a working-class agenda."
That's how the Party works - so it goes, on and on. Labour is our only hope - but Labour never does what it promises or what we want. Never did - not even after the post WWII election. No illusions about what Labour WILL do, but a huge illusion about what it MAY do - in some glorious paradisial future - which never comes.
How is it that so many can be fooled for so long? Beats me.
